Mason Police District – Detectives from the Major Crimes are investigating the report of an abduction and sexual assault that occurred sometime between 11 p.m. Saturday, October 22 and 2:00 a.m. the following morning. Thus far, the investigation has determined that a 50-year-old woman went to a restaurant in the 5800 block of Columbia Pike, in the Falls Church area. She met two men and the three left together in a mini-van similar to an older Honda Odyssey headed toward Arlington. While in the van, both suspects sexually assaulted the victim. During the assault, a handgun was displayed. The suspects took the victim’s phone and forced her out of the car somewhere along route 50 near South Manchester in Arlington County. She flagged down a passerby, who called police.


The victim was taken to a local hospital where she was medically evaluated and released late Sunday afternoon.

The suspects were described as Hispanic; one was around 30 years old, 5 feet 2 to 5 feet 5 inches tall, with a slim build. The other suspect was in his early 20s, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, with an athletic build.
